Endorsements

“Ever since I read his Unity Factor almost twenty years ago, Larry Osborne has been my mentor from afar. Now that Larry is writing books again, he has become a go-to author for me because he speaks my language and deals with my issues. I read everything he writes!” — Pete Briscoe, SENIOR PASTOR OF BENT TREE BIBLE FELLOWSHIP AND AUTHOR OF CHRISTIANITY: A FOLLOWER’S GUIDE AND SECRETS FROM THE TREADMILL

“A very liberating read, as well as one that will surely deepen your trust in God. Larry takes apart ten commonly held beliefs that don’t make sense…because they aren’t true!” — Russ Carroll, CEO OF MIVA MERCHANT

“In Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe, Larry Osborne dismantles many ideas that have derailed the faith of sincere Christians for far too long. Larry has the rare capacity to communicate difficult truths in a way that ignites the imagination and disarms the soul. I strongly recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper and more-nuanced faith.” — Scott Chapman, SENIOR PASTOR OF THE CHAPEL, ILLINOIS

“Larry Osborne never fails to compel me to think with greater precision. Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe challenges us to reevaluate what we can so glibly believe and come away with a faith that we can deeply admire.”— Dr. Wayne Cordeiro, AUTHOR OF THE DIVINE MENTOR, DOING CHURCH AS A TEAM AND THE LIFE JOURNAL

“I recommend anything Larry Osborne writes. He’s hit another homer with Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe! Larry unshackles our souls from things that threaten to destroy us. I’m confident your life will be better after reading this book!” — Ron Forseth, VICE PRESIDENT OF OUTREACH INC. AND GENERAL EDITOR OF SERMONCENTRAL.COM

“Larry Osborne’s Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe will help new believers and seasoned Christians alike. People often believe what they’ve heard without knowing why. Larry pierces through widely accepted spiritual legends with common sense and scriptural precision.” — Craig Groeschel, PASTOR OF LIFECHURCH.TV AND AUTHOR OF CONFESSIONS OF A PASTOR

“This is Larry Osborne at his best: scripturally sound, brutally honest, and dripping with grace. He has the guts to blow up myths that have lingered for far too long. Whether you’ve been reading your Bible for years or just bought your first one yesterday, you should listen to this gracious but straightforward wisdom.” — Greg Holden, PASTOR OF WINDSOR CROSSING COMMUNITY CHURCH, CHESTERFIELD, MISSOURI

“This book will liberate us from faulty assumptions about God and life that keep us trapped or looking like naive fools. Larry Osborne brings practical and biblical wisdom to bear on some beliefs that we never should’ve held and that have always confused us. His chapters on forgiving and judging alone are worth the price of the book.” — Mel Lawrenz, SENIOR PASTOR OF ELMBROOK CHURCH AND AUTHOR OF I WANT TO BELIEVE

“For a long time the world has needed this very important book. With patience and clarity, Larry dissects erroneous beliefs that masquerade as faith. He helps us wade through the nonsense—inaccurate and misguided ideas we cling to—and guides us to an understanding that results in a winsome, authentic faith…the kind we all long for.” — Nancy Ortberg, FOUNDING PARTNER OF TEAMWORKX2 AND AUTHOR OF LOOKING FOR GOD

“Larry Osborne blends pastoral experience and counterintuitive wisdom that will frustrate (in a good way), challenge, and encourage you as you seek to walk with God for a lifetime.” — Darrin Patrick, PASTOR OF THE JOURNEY, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

“Filled with common sense from the heart, this book is a well-written and entirely biblical look at often-misunderstood principles in Scripture. I have found it not only helpful in my own life but also effective in discipling others. Great illustrations make the principles clear and easy to grasp. The game-plan illustration relating to God’s will alone is worth the price of the book.” — Steve Potratz, PRESIDENT OF PARABLE CHRISTIAN STORES AND THE PARABLE GROUP

“I remember exactly where I was sitting during a visit to North Coast Church when I first heard my friend Larry Osborne explode the myth that faith fixes everything. I was there to learn the inner workings of the church but walked away with new insight into my faith. Since that time Larry has taught me much about the dumb things smart Christians (and even smart pastors) believe. You’ll find one ‘aha’ moment after another in this book. I’m buying copies for all our small-group leaders.” — Nelson Searcy, LEAD PASTOR OF THE JOURNEY CHURCH, NEW YORK CITY

“Larry Osborne takes us through misunderstandings handed down from generation to generation, from Sunday-school class to Sunday-school class. In today’s jambalaya spirituality, Larry helps spiritual seekers and misinformed churchgoers sort through the true and the ridiculous. From the barbershop to the halls of traditional church, myths are circulating…and now Larry brings the light and balance of Scripture to enlighten the misinformed.” — Stacy Spencer, SENIOR PASTOR OF NEW DIRECTION CHRISTIAN CHURCH, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE

“Larry’s commonsense approach in addressing widely held but incorrect spiritual beliefs brings clarity and sanity—finally! The chapters on forgiveness and parenting struck a particular chord with me. Larry is a wise pastor, gifted in teaching Scripture in a way that makes biblical truth accessible and understandable. I highly recommend this book to those familiar with the Christian faith and to those who aren’t.” — Linda Stanley, DIRECTOR OF NEXT GENERATION PASTORS LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY, LEADERSHIP NETWORK

“Larry Osborne pulls no punches in Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe. He brings clarity and biblical insight to commonly misunderstood ideas. With books like this one, Christians will believe fewer stupid things that damage their spiritual journeys. This book is worth reading and sharing.” — Ed Stetzer, COAUTHOR OF COMPELLED BY LOVE

“Larry Osborne gives wise counsel for all Christians. Once you start reading, this book is hard to put down. It will influence and impact your core beliefs.” — Tim Stripe, CO-OWNER OF GRAND PACIFIC RESORTS, CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA

“I couldn’t put Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe down once I started reading it. Many Christians have the same issues Larry addresses with gentle clarity to correct thinking and behaviors. A great book for new and serious believers alike.” — Dave Travis, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF LEADERSHIP NETWORK AND AUTHOR OF BEYOND MEGACHURCH MYTHS AND BEYOND THE BOX: INNOVATIVE CHURCHES THAT WORK

“Smart Christians can fall for a lot of dumb beliefs. I hadn’t considered how many till I read this book, chock-full of sensible observations, disarming illustrations, and compelling scriptural insights. Larry makes you laugh while he makes you think.” — Ken Werlein, FOUNDING PASTOR OF FAITHBRIDGE CHURCH, HOUSTON, TEXAS

“This is a great book. It’s a life-changing message the world needs to hear. Everyone should buy a copy and read it.” — Carolyn Osborne, LARRY’S MOM

    This book is easily read and reminds the reader to be aware of 10 ideas they really know are not in the Bible but which they hear so often they partially accept. A good course corrector.

    A book that will make you think about God. Why it is important to read the bible with total understanding. Prayer is always the answer to full understanding of anything.

    This review was written for Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe.
    Deeply thought-provoking, examining whether how we live and talk day to day really lines up with what the Bible tells us about the Lord. Ch. 8 and 9 especially, on the belief that "God brings good luck," really challenged some of my habits in how I pray, how I teach children to pray, and how I counsel with other believers. God really never did promise to fix all our problems, but we in the church keep talking as if He did. Ch. 10, on funeral platitudes, started out looking like a side issue but quickly turned to examine some central issues about evangelism. Yet his tone is always pleasant and friendly, occasionally humorous, and he's got Scripture to back up his points. And this is not just talk - Osbourne points out that these unthinking habits of mind can do real damage to one's relationship with God. My pastor borrowed this one.
